I propose for the next HCLS (June 21) call we discuss what map(s) we need to create or modify for HCLS and its different tasks (if necessary).

As Chimie pointed out, we should take care to have good overview maps of all the participating HCLS communities, and wherever possible, how they mioght connect. I had attempted last year to do that with an "ecosystem' view of the Bench-to-Bedside vision with different stakeholder communities (different color tracks). This is obviously distinct from the "data maps" uploaded on our new site, which are closer to ontologicallyy-sound "topic maps'.

I was more concerned about how SW data can easily move between very different org domains and uses. TimBL's app map was a nice example of "data interoperability" and "app independence", though it takes place only in software app OS space (calendars, email, photos, CRMs).  I attempted to move from software apps to community functions (e.g., clincial trials, patient record mgmt). 

We probably should have some clear text for each map image...

I know it is a map for my current project, but it could be use for the
map in HCLS also or at least might be an inspiration. It is base on
the idea of the subway of TBL, but I used the Montreal subway map
instead of the London one.

You can see it in the Bio2RDF Blog

> It should be used for creation of a map of the Semantic Web in Health Care and Life Science (from here on called the 'HCLS map'). The resulting illustrations should give an overview of the different disciplines, information/knowledge types and data source; as well as the connection between them. At this point in time it is still unclear how detailed this map will be. The illustrations will be used for various HCLS poster presentations and will also be put on the web. We might also want to use the HCLS map for future journal papers. Generally, the illustration will be of utmost importance if we want to communicate our achievements and plans to people outside of our community.
